NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To help retirees successfully transition from saving for retirement to dependable income they can rely on in retirement, Global Atlantic has launched a new “Income Ready” campaign. The initiative features dedicated educational websites for financial advisors and consumers looking to learn more about developing a retirement income strategy.
“Ask someone if they’re ready for retirement and the answer is almost always an emphatic yes,” said Paula Nelson, president of retirement for Global Atlantic. “But then ask them if they’re income ready for retirement and they’re not so sure.”
GetIncomeReady.com, the consumer website, features educational resources for individuals who are planning for retirement. These features include videos, a retirement income needs calculator and sample stories to illustrate strategies.
The financial advisor website, IncomeReady.com, is designed to educate and prepare advisors to engage clients in income planning discussions. The website features educational materials including client income insight videos, an interactive experience that aims to dispel common annuity myths, and retirement case studies, as well as other resources advisors can use to support their client conversations. Advisors can also use the website to request a live Alliance for Lifetime Income workshop on the best ways to communicate with clients regarding retirement income needs.
“Our new websites aim to take the guesswork out of retirement income planning, for both consumers and their financial advisors,” said Nelson. “The tools and resources we are providing through this program will help ensure that there is a healthy dialogue around creating a protected lifetime income strategy.”
